The DPAA’s New Year’s Eve celebration will be a feast for the senses. Prior to the concert, tasty appetizers and sweets will be available for purchase in the Wintergarden, and during intermission the audience can toast one another with flutes of champagne. The performance itself will feature all three facets of the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance—dancers from Dayton Ballet, vocalists from Dayton Opera, and the instrumentalists of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. And, as always, a splash of color ends the evening with a balloon drop at the finale.

Celebrate New Year’s Eve a bit early, with the festivities running from 8 pm to 10 pm.

Afterward, you’ll still have time for another party or to head home in time to watch the ball drop.

This event has become a Miami Valley favorite . . . reserve your seats early!
